Dino’s had a call from Brett from the Boomers saying that one of their players mother have passed away & the funeral will be held on Saturday down South.

A number of their players will be attending so they have had to cancel the game

So after talks with Keechy were going to play an intraclub game between ourselves down at Jurassic Park starting at 3pm. It will be 11 or 12 per side, so guys if you know anyone who wants a run get them to come along.

Muzza, Simba, Reevsy or anyone else with a young bloke bring them along if they’re available.

Please also invite the ladies & young kids along as we’ll have a Barby & we’ll provide some drinks for the ladies as well.

Cheers Ace

Just had a call from Brett from Eaton Boomers asking if we want to have game next Saturday (01/09). They were trying to organise a mini carnival But it would be just Boomers Vs Dinosaurs now.

Game would be @ 3pm @ their ground & they are planning on getting a band & having a feed (partners as well). It will be a $20 per head to cover costs.

Can you please let me know ASAP if you want to play & also if you’ll be able to hang around for the band & meal.


Keechy Korner – City Carnival

As expected the City Carnival came and went like a freight train. Once again it has reminded us that life is as much about having a drink and a laugh with occasionally similarly minded blokes as the slightly more serious pursuits of family, work and renovations.

We met on Friday at 4pm at Jurassic Park and to everyone’s surprise, were away by 4.15pm with Reever in the drivers seat. To nobody’s surprise the first stop came in the form of a bottle shop and to pick up a couple of Dinos that had started earlier that afternoon at The Highway (it will be Barbados next year I promise Frank). With the eskies stocked and Spirit Radio’s boom box belting out a Reeves Medley of soft rock songs, we headed to Dominos Pizza in Eaton to load up for the long-ish night ahead.

After negotiating Golden Bay and grabbing Oggy (excellent news, his battle in the Bunbury Courthouse earlier that day and was successful so will be back evading RBTs in time for Easter 2013), we landed in Perth after half a dozen dewatering stoppages. Reevesy wasted no time testing out Hay St on his long skate board and another head injury was looming. Fortunately his mellon was split open during the first game, attempting his signature 2012 bind spin with cut back into the centre and optional flour bagger to opposition, rather than requiring a distracting 000 call that night.

So on the eve of our second Perth Carnival, The Dinosaurs contemplate the enormous task ahead. Our draw has the sleepy seaside estate of Dalyellup taking on 3 major cities in Mandurah (Makos), Kalgoorlie and Geraldton (Mariners)….without our captain in Murray Wharton, our playing coach in Stephen Stewart, the dominant centre half forward of the comp in Shane Jones, our dual twin towners tap ruckmen in Dan Mangan and Scott Sarre, and our best player of 2012 and a shoe in for all star status in Mike Kelly.

If there was any hint of reservation within the camp, it was not evident at our last training on Tuesday 14th August. It could have been one of our best hit outs for the year and a steely resolve to put our best foot forward was obvious. The new jumpers have just arrived, they look fantastic and has given the group a bit of a lift. We even have Yellow Submarine music done in a footy song theme (complete with trumpets/bugles) which will be played as we run out onto the ground for each game. This year we will have a tent which will carry our generous sponsor’s signage [Barbados, Warrick Welding, Go Go on Hold, The Parks Centre, Nexus, Summit Homes SW, Gard & Assocs, Southern Lock, Bunbury Wholesale Motors, Go West, Progress Physio, and The Bunbury Mail]

The social side of things are set and have been put together by Kev Pears and Bill Keech with Haoosty (as his new jumper states) providing the wheels for the trip. Friday night will be spent at the luxurious Carlton Hotel with Alderney on Hay again acting as the lodgings for 2012 with The Han Palace also making a comeback as our restaurant for the evening on Saturday. Ace will be the liaison officer on the morning of the carnival and will be there waiting when the bus with ‘Yellow Submarine’ blearing out arrives at the ground.

Perth Carnival squad : Craig Hall, David Haoust, Kevin Pears, Bill Keech, Paul Delaney, Jay Curtis, Jamie Reeves, Darren Gittos, Dave White, Chris Simbas, Luke Gray, Simon Rose, Troy Corton, Stuart Parnell, Jason Heal, Steve Baskerville, Nick Ogden, Andy Cameron , Mike Grieve , Lee Hutton , Chris Cameron, Mick Hoggan , Justin Miller, Andrew King, Brett Moulton, Pearsys mate from Darwin and the non-playing Frank Vardaro. (theres also been a few whispers of guest appearace of couple of the boys from Wembley old boys)

Let’s all just hope that nobody loses an eye due to Craig (The Pest) Hall’s box of tricks.
